    OWC / Other World Computing Mercury Elite-AL ... reviews

    Mercury Elite-AL Pro Mini Quad-Interface Storage Solution (500GB) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stable, portable I use the drives for video storage and editing from them, tethered via USB to my Macbook Pro. The drives are reliable and affordable. However, I did have one act strangely when mounted via Firewire. USB is much more stable, just slower.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended Has 3 useful connections for computers with the following common connections: USB, Firewire, eSATA The instructions in the manual are understandable and functions great with any computer
